Start Preamble

AGENCY:

Health Care Financing Administration (HCFA), HHS.

ACTION:

Correcting amendments.

SUMMARY:

In the April 7, 2000 issue of the Federal Register (65 FR 18434), we published a final rule with a comment period that implemented a prospective payment system for hospital outpatient services furnished to Medicare beneficiaries. In addition, the final rule established requirements and standards for facilities or organizations seeking provider-based status. This document corrects technical errors in the preamble and regulations text made in that part of the final rule related to provider-based requirements. (A document published in the Federal Register on October 3, 2000 (65 FR 58919) delayed the effective date of the provider-based regulations from October 10, 2000 to January 10, 2001 and made a conforming change in the regulations text.)

EFFECTIVE DATE:

January 10, 2001.
